Infinity Ward: Call of Duty formula not for everyone

It's no understatement that Activision is the king of the annual game release. Call of Duty; Skylanders; and the -- may it rest in peace -- Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero franchises have been milked to death in more than a few gamer's eyes. For the most part, the annual release schedule has worked well for the publisher. (Call of Duty: Ghosts, PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

"Call of duty formula not for everyone"

Seeing how I have prestiged 51 times in MW3 over my 3 accounts and have over 94,000 kills in COD BLOPS 2 I normally like there fast paced games. But Ghosts maps are so big it becomes harder to find anyone and it literally diluted the action right out of COD Ghosts. There old formula was for me and I have a ton of people on my friends list who play cod every year. Even my friends don't like there new game. Way to screw over your fanbase infinity ward.
It was a pretty bad move lol. I mean I don't like COD's formula. Haven't played Ghosts but the changes they made sound like they'd appeal to me, especially quick scoping.

But you gotta cater to what your fanbase wants. They're the loyal ones. Trying to appeal to broader audiences should come after catering to your fanbase.

The maps would be better if they have more people in the game. Youtube cod ghosts stonehaven and you'll know what I mean.

Quickscoping in this game is just as bad as MW2...unfortunately

BIG MAPS YOU SAY?

Finally. CoD got retarded when all they decided to do was make stupid tiny maps with chokepoints everywhere so you can shot half a clip and die every 15seconds!

Not that I care that much, CoD needs a serious reset back to the roots when it resembled something world class that told the best story, and had fun multiplayer (CoD WaW, Blops, MW1!!!!!!!)

They need more players in the maps though. Otherwise it's a game of hide and seek. It also gets really boring when every second game you can't find someone for like 4 or 5 minutes. There is more action in far cry 3 then COD Ghosts.

I love how at first even after black ops 2. People wanted bigger maps now they have them and they fuking complain about it hahaha

christrules0041  +   631d ago
No it is 6 vs 6 in all COD games.

I love Bigger maps, makes being a marksmen more fun. But what they did to the SP really rubbed me the wrong way.

I never liked IW games. Terribly unbalanced. They do have a better presentation and better guns though. The Treyarch games are more balanced, have sharper graphics, but I don't like the feel of their games.

I can relate to your comment whenever I play it at a friends house or pop in the old COD at home I can tell the difference between them in terms of the "feel"

I do love cod games (mind you i started playing when the 1st black ops came out), but after MW3 and BLOP2 im in no rush to buy it, do i love the feeling of new maps new guns and talking b.s to a new crowd of 10 year olds sure.. but am i willing to pay $60 bucks just to have the right to complain on how much i dont like it or what needs to be improved on, nope.. A used copy will turn up soon enough on craigslist.

The formula is not for everyone, its only for stupid people who are willing to pay 60 bucks for the same sh*t year after year after year...

Exactly. I stopped buying COD after it got away from the world war days.
dcj0524  +   631d ago
